Taking Back Soundboy Sunday

Taking Back Soundboy Sunday

Before they were the Traveling Wilburys, they were just Jeff, Bob, Roy, George and Tom—five guys who had already changed the world of music. When they came together to form the legendary supergroup, it wasn’t because of each individual’s status in the pantheon of rock gods. It was because they just enjoyed hanging out with each other.

Sergio Raynal: A Life’s Second Act Forged Against the Grain

Sergio Raynal: A Life’s Second Act Forged Against the Grain

Open the door to Sergio Raynal’s understated, runway-adjacent Hunter Road office park woodworking studio, and you immediately realize you’re in for an inspiring encounter. The bass guitar-shaped piece of rare Hawaiian Koa wood hung on the greeting room wall and the nine-foot-long family table forged from a once-in-a-lifetime timber find with a human silhouette in the grain clue you in to his craft (the latter a 10-year-old creation Raynal reacquired after his client moved and commissioned a replacement).

Beyond the Surface: How Rob Cavano and Charles Arriola took a leap of faith, building Coastal Countertops and Tile from the ground up.

Beyond the Surface: How Rob Cavano and Charles Arriola took a leap of faith, building Coastal Countertops and Tile from the ground up.

If there is a single moment that defines the American spirit, it’s the moment in which someone decides to start their own business, fearlessly putting all their chips on the table and betting everything on themselves. It’s a moment of pure courage, and one whose stakes get even higher based on how much time one has already invested in climbing the corporate ladder.

Kyle Wareham: Happy days, Magical sounds

Kyle Wareham: Happy days, Magical sounds

In just a short time as part of the Lowcountry music scene, Kyle Wareham has become an icon among diehard fans and fellow musicians. He melts crowds with his piercing crooner vocals and lyrics as part of bands like Pretty Darn and Soundboy and has elevated the sounds of some of the island’s best singers as an increasingly trusted album producer—all in about six years on Hilton Head Island.

Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls: Call the Gutter Pro, Troy Dolin.

Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls: Call the Gutter Pro, Troy Dolin.

“Troy Dolin, Gutter Pro” is more than the name behind the owner-operated and locally invested business. The phrase represents a philosophy and promise to keep it simple and personal for a purpose: “From phone call to sign-off,” Dolin assures, “you’re going to get me directly.” It’s a commitment to the first-person handling of your project and an individualized attention to detail.

The Difference of Design: Kelly Caron Designs puts a premium on professionalism and experience.

The Difference of Design: Kelly Caron Designs puts a premium on professionalism and experience.

There’s a certain look to Lowcountry homes and businesses, one that is often emulated beyond the confines of the 843 area code, but never truly duplicated. It lies at the intersection of comfort and sophistication—where nickel-gap shiplap accent walls and craftsman style millwork in crisp whites meet the rustic grain of reclaimed wood and the dull sheen of hammered copper.

The Evolution of an Artist: Pam White’s journey to a career that was meant to be

The Evolution of an Artist: Pam White’s journey to a career that was meant to be

On a steamy August morning, artist Pam (PJ) White answers the door at her Sea Pines home, her sassy blond hair casually tousled to complement her “office” attire (shorts, T-shirt, sandals, and work apron). She disarms her security monitors (two suddenly vocal Bernese Mountain Dogs), whisking them to a back room and beckoning me to her garage/studio. The doors are rolled up, inviting in the day. This is where the magic happens.

Mike Kavanaugh: From ‘No Cover’ to Unlike Any Other

Mike Kavanaugh: From ‘No Cover’ to Unlike Any Other

That is the magic of Mike Kavanaugh, the architect of the island’s most beloved band, JoJo Squirrell and the Home Pickles. He has played more than 6,000 shows in the Lowcountry and booked another 40,000 performances in the 25 years of his second stint on the island—our numbers, not Mike’s; his Buffalo-bred work ethic leaves little time for reflecting or self-promoting.

Musings from a Woman in the Music Biz

Musings from a Woman in the Music Biz

The middle-aged man with the dri-fit polo and five o’clock shadow looks me up and down. “You sound great, if only you would just smile for us more.” I grimace and reluctantly glance in his direction. “Thanks for the tip,” I tell him, trying not to roll my eyes. He nods and sips his beer, not catching my sarcasm. It isn’t the first time I’ve gotten this comment, and nine out of 10 times, it’s come from a man.

An Eye for Music: Known for their imaginatively dazzling commercial videos, Harden Creative cuts its teeth on music videos, and the beat goes on

An Eye for Music: Known for their imaginatively dazzling commercial videos, Harden Creative cuts its teeth on music videos, and the beat goes on

It’s around 9 a.m. on a Monday, and musician Jevon Daly is submerged up to his shoulders in the briny waters of the May River. He’s attempting to go completely under the waves, but the floppy hood of his shark costume refuses to cooperate, jeopardizing the entire video shoot for his song, “Sharks are our Homies.”

Outside In: For Don and Becky Kimble, it all started with a marsh view. It ended with a Sea Pines home that exults in the extraordinary.

Outside In: For Don and Becky Kimble, it all started with a marsh view. It ended with a Sea Pines home that exults in the extraordinary.

If there is a single defining element to the elegant Sea Pines Resort home of Don and Becky Kimble, it’s the marsh. That nearly uninterrupted view across spartina grass and winding tidal creeks was what drew the couple to the lot in the first place. And when Hurricane Matthew claimed their first home, that view ultimately became the driving force behind their new home.
